E-Cigs & Weight Loss: What You Need to Know

Getting healthy, losing weight, and keeping that weight off is a major topic of discussion these days. American obesity has reached dire levels among the adult population, with more than 1/3 being considered obese. While electronic cigarettes are in no way a product meant to target weight loss, or be used as a means to lose weight, they are an alternative smoking method that offer anyone who wants to quit smoking cigarettes, a healthier option. Weight loss should not be just about whittling down your middle, or sculpting specific body parts only. Health is an all-around thing, and it should be maintained throughout the whole body. So if you are looking to get healthier, lose weight and quit smoking, here’s how e-cigarettes can work for you.

Electronic cigarettes simply are a better and healthier smoking option just for the fact of being smokeless. They also contain no tar, no carcinogens, and none of the countless filler chemicals that cigarettes are known for. They can absolutely fit into a healthy lifestyle, and so many users have reported a wide range of positive health benefits that occur after they make the switch.

Many smokers are reluctant to quit smoking because they fear the infamous 10 lb weight gain, and appetite stimulation that is common when the body is off the nicotine. Sadly, as unhealthy as cigarettes are, this fear is a major motivation for plenty of people. Since the 1920’s, tobacco companies have targeted women with ads that promised weight loss, and a slimmer physique by smoking. Is your figure really worth all the horrors that come with tobacco? Definitely not.

While this was considered common knowledge, yet was previously unproven, a recent study was published in the Journal of Endocrinology in March 2012. The findings shed light on the effects of nicotine in the body, resulting in the prevention of weight gain from a high fat diet, and the subsequent lack of accumulation of abdominal fat. The study was performed on rats, comparing the effects of nicotine and saline on high-fat and standard diets. The outcome showed that nicotine was successful in limiting the amount of weight gain with the high fat diet, and resulted in a more even distribution of fat throughout the body.

For many years, the scientific connections between weight loss and nicotine were not fully understood, even though throughout history tobacco’s ability to suppress the appetite was well documented for centuries. So long in fact, there is evidence that dates to periods before Columbus in America. Cracking the nicotine code, neurobiology and pharmacology professor at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Marina Picciotto conducted studies that revealed the abilities nicotine has within the body. What they uncovered was that very low levels of nicotine reduced body fat in mice from anywhere between 15 to 20%, as well as suppressed their appetites as much as 50%. The same effects were found with similarly low doses of cystisine, which is a drug that binds to nicotine receptors in the brain. Nicotine and cystisine have a direct effect on the brain’s appetite receptors, and at the same time, they are also entirely unrelated to the receptors responsible for tobacco cravings.

So, even with this interesting study offering insight as to how nicotine really works towards keeping the weight off, smoking tobacco cigarettes is still not wise. Getting healthy should include all areas of your body; not just targeting the unwanted fat. Weight loss should be expected with a proper diet, exercise, and appropriate lifestyle habits. If you must have your nicotine, go with e-cigs; they are way healthier than tobacco.

What is an E-cigarette?

Let’s get back to basics. If you’re wondering about these amazing products known as electronic cigarettes, or E-cigarettes, here is a little info explaining it all simply.

E-cigarettes are not really cigarettes at all, even though they were designed to replicate them as an alternative for smokers. They look like them, they taste like them, they feel like them when you “smoke” them, and the effects afterwards are the same. Where they differ is in the positives. First and foremost, e-cigs are smokeless. That’s right, they release no smoke! While they look like they produce smoke when used, it’s actually water vapor. Right off the bat they eliminate the most harmful part of cigarettes. No smoke means no second hand smoke, too! While they simulate cigarettes entirely, they contain no tobacco, so all the chemicals and problems that tobacco encompass are not an issue.

E-cigarettes are comprised of a battery, at atomizer, and a cartridge. In more advanced models, like EverSmoke’s electronic cigarettes, the cartridge and atomizer are combined into one unit for a simpler, better performing device. The cartridge contains the liquid nicotine, and when smoked, the battery powers the atomizer to vaporize the nicotine. It then gets inhaled by the user, and the exhale is cloud of vapor.

E-cigs are way beyond traditional cigarettes in so many ways, and they offer so many ways to use them. They can be smoked anywhere, indoors or out. They release no odor, no tar, and of course, no smoke. Many smokers have used them to lessen their nicotine intake, some with dramatically successful results.

E-Cigarettes: An Investment for Yourself!

Your whole body’s health should be considered an investment. It is an investment to your long-term happiness, and enjoyment of being able to live comfortably and freely. As anyone with common knowledge knows, tobacco is immensely harmful, and unfortunately very hard to get away from. If you are a smoker, have you considered the great alternative that electronic cigarettes are? While they aren’t precisely an aid to quit smoking with, many people have used them to curb their nicotine intake, as well as an option in smoke-free nicotine.

Health is of superior importance to all aspects of life. Cliché as it is, it’s true. If you have your health, you can accomplish anything. Without it, life can feel bleak. Your health is one of the most important things you can protect! Being able to experience your daily life without the shackles of smoke, feeling the need to incessantly puff on a cigarette is a liberating thought many smokers are aspiring to. E-cigarettes can help you reclaim your health without the smoke, and allow you to feel better all the while!

Does your lifestyle permit tobacco smoking? Most don’t accommodate it well whatsoever. And if your spouse, or partner does not share the same enthusiasm for smoke as you do, you don’t even have to mention how hard it is to come to an agreement on smoke! Modern ways, with our ever-busy schedules just don’t allow for leisurely cigarette breaks. Life is moving at a blazing speed, and e-cigarettes and accessories keep right up with it.

The quality of your day to day really adds up. Consider every day to be an inch closer to a goal realized. By getting rid of the tobacco, and incorporating e-cigs into your life, you are making changes that will effect your daily existence. Less illnesses, less chance of developing major life threatening diseases, and less time spent doing unhealthy things will come out to more time used with purpose and direction, for the better.

And how can we discuss investments without mentioning actual monetary savings? Electronic cigarettes are also really, really cost effective! They save users plenty of money, and are far less expensive than smoking old-fashioned cigarettes. This means you’ll have extra money to toss at other financial investments; doing something great for your long-term future!

Five Star Service

Most e-cigarette companies think they can get by on pretty pictures alone. While their products may lack, the skills of their photographer show off fancy e-cigs in the limelight. Then, when customers fall for the pretty packaging, and the product fails, in come the bad reviews. While this seems like a very foolish way to sell products, many e-cigarette brands do this. And another big area for failure is that of e-cig customer service, which is a major point for customers.

Tips For Smoking E-Cigs

E-cigarettes have been a miracle product for many people, and they really are an excellent alternative to tobacco. However, as alluring as they are, plenty of people shy away from electronic cigarettes after bad first experiences for various reasons. This is a shame because there are a whole range of issues that could have arose, especially if the user was not in the company of someone who is experienced, or they did not know about all the little things that can be done to maximize their usage. Whether you’re a pro or a newbie, here are some tips that are great to keep in mind for getting the most out of your e-cigs!

  • First and foremost, before you begin make sure that your battery is charged fully. This ensures a powerful vapor production, and optimal performance.
  • When you start a new cartridge, to activate it you should give it a series of quick puffs before you fully inhale. This activates the vapor, and especially when using the manual switch batteries, creates a much thicker, fuller vapor.
  • Once it is ready, you will get the most nicotine when you take long, slow puffs. You should feel the vapor very easily.
  • When the flavor seems to be weakening, or the vapor seems less intense, it’s probably due to the cartridge getting low. Simply replace it.
  • Prepare in advance; keep extra e-cigarette batteries around, and fully charged so that you can puff anytime you need to. If you are the busy type, having accessories like the Personal Charging Case and other portable chargers can keep things very convenient and easy. The car adapter allows you to charge in your car, and the USB charger will let you charge your batteries through you computer’s USB port. Purchasing additional batteries, and in different sizes will give you a lot of versatility.
  • If you are trying e-cigs for the first time, educate yourself before you commit to a single brand. Don’t shortchange yourself opting for a cheaper product for your first time. You are much better off opting for a high quality product, one that will last, and will perform at an optimal level.

E-Cigs: A Whole Lot Cleaner

Do tobacco cigarettes seem dirty to you? With their pollution, and invasive, hazardous smoke, and the way they can be so easily addicting, and the way they are filled with more than 4000 different chemicals? If you smoke, these facts have got to be bothersome, and you’re most likely looking to get as far away from them as possible! Now if you are an electronic cigarette smoker, you’re probably thrilled to not be smoking cigarettes any longer, if you previously did. The bottom line is that tobacco is dirty, and tobacco cigarettes are even dirtier. Millions upon millions of deaths have happened because of them, and their effects.

Rather than smoke, when you puff on an electric cig, the exhale is vapor. The vapor is what carries the nicotine, and having a sizeable vapor is a major component of a e-cigarette’s effectiveness. You can smoke in anyone’s company; the elderly, around children, your non-smoking friends and coworkers, carpool partners, whoever, without creating a toxic environment with second smoke! If you’re considering them, an e-cigarette starter kit is a very good idea.

On the subject of cleanliness, e-cigs are also far greener of a product. Who isn’t trying to get healthier nowadays? Quitting smoking is a huge boost to anyone’s health, and the sooner you rid your body of tobacco the better you will be because of it. Commercial tobacco farming, which by the way is lessening constantly, has been known to use an embarrassing level of dangerous pesticides to keep their plants in line for production. These chemicals stay within the plant, and get incorporated into the cigarettes, which will then be smoked. All of those chemicals used in the farming are absorbed into the soil, which can generate runoff and pollute the surrounding areas on a large scale. This is a frightening concept that no one in the big tobacco industry is much interested in divulging much on. On a positive note, electronic cigarettes provide a simple solution for smokers to obtain nicotine, without the tobacco burden.

Above all, e-cigarettes are a far greener way to smoke, and get your nicotine. Non-polluting, not chemical-laden, and smoke-free make them better for everyone and for the planet!

Change Your Ways, Change Your Life

It probably took you very little time to get addicted to cigarettes, and now that you want to quit the outlook looks pretty bleak. Cigarettes are the burden of millions, and most people who smoke them feel powerless in their struggle to overcome the habit. The majority of smokers I know who have quit seem to always go back to them for one reason or another. Whichever method they use, the urge to smoke lingers.

E-cigarettes are not necessarily a means of quitting, but they offer smokers an amazing alternative. You can wean your nicotine intake way down if you want, or you can smoke as much as you like without all of the problems of smoke. Smoking electronic cigarettes allows you to have more control of how you smoke, and that alone is enough of a reason to make the switch! They are far more economical, and they do not come with all the restrictions and baggage that regular tobacco cigarettes have. Having options is fantastic, and can create an altogether better experience for you as a smoker. With the old fashioned version, you have to go to store, buy them, light them and smoke them. You probably finish off entire cigarettes every time you smoke because when you spend that much money for something, does it makes sense to waste any? Of course not. But while it’s an immediate sense f not wasting, you inevitably pay with your health. All in all, cigarettes are such a problem! With e-cigs, you have the choice to smoke as much or as little as you want, and you aren’t obligated to finish an entire cartridge at once. Many people who’ve switched to electronic find this alone allows them to lessen their nicotine cravings because they truly only want a couple of puffs. When they feel done, they just put it away. Very simple! You also have the option to choose your nicotine strength. The highest nicotine level is the 18mg cartridge, and then followed by 12mg, 6mg, and 0mg for those who simply want the flavor and the action of smoking. For many, this is what drives their cigarette addiction in the first place, and by replicating the movements, inhaling and exhaling, they become satisfied.

Success Story: Leslie

We always love to get feedback from our customers, and when we receive letters of appreciation, like the lovely Leslie recently sent us, we are more than happy to share them with the rest of the EverSmoke community. Without further ado, here is Leslie’s testimonial:

At the end of February I decided that after 20 years of smoking enough was enough. I had been debating and thinking about quitting. But was very unsettled about how to make any kind of change. After trying several times to quit and trying other methods I was at a loss of what to do. The last time I did the cold turkey routine it lasted only a week. I heard about electronic cigarettes and saw them in the local stores but did not know very much so I went online, read reviews and looked aorund. I found a lot of information about Eversmoke and a lot of great testimonials from people. So  I placed my first order, the basic starter kit. Becuase really I did not want to invest a lot right off the bat only to find out it was not for me.

It has now been 1 month since I have placed my order. I have not somked a traditional cigarrette , and I am not craving one either . Thank you Eversmoke for a wonderful product. This has made such a huge change in not only my life. I no longer have to worry about the second hand smoke in my house , around my son and other members who are not smokers. People are even commenting on how my house no longer smells.
